My name is Albert Liu; I’m currently a senior studying Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Arizona.
I work in the lab of Dr. Carol Dieckmann, where we are investigating the function of metabolic pathway proteins in yeast mitochondria, and the possible implications this may have on rare human genetic disease. My goal for the near future is to attend graduate school and pursue a Ph.D. in molecular biology, with an emphasis on genetics or cancer biology. Outside of the lab, I spend my free time reading about timepieces, collecting pens and watching bad horror movies.
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. They also get a chance to share their music and interests that motivate them.
Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
